Justin Bieber Responds to Sexual Assault Allegation
Justin Bieber responded to a sexual assault claim made by a Twitter user by producing screenshots of emails and hotel receipts.
Over the weekend, a Twitter user alleged that she was sexually assaulted by the singer in 2014 when she was 21 and Bieber was 20.
The tweet was later deleted.
According to People magazine, the user alleged that she met Justin while attending an event in Texas.
She further claimed that she and her friends were invited back to the pop star’s hotel where she was “sexually assaulted without consent.”
“I don’t normally address things as I have dealt with random accusations my entire career but after talking with my wife [Hailey Baldwin] and team I have decided to speak up on an issue tonight,” Justin started in a series of tweets.
He then shared several links to articles from the time period in addition to proof of receipts and emails, to deny the allegation.
He then said, “We have also confirmed with the Four Seasons regional manager that I was never on property on the 9th of March 2014 and never a guest on the 9th or the 10th and I welcome all press to inquire with them if needed or wanted.”
“Every claim of sexual abuse should be taken very seriously and this is why my response was needed. However this story is factually impossible and that is why I will be working with twitter and authorities to take legal action,” he concluded.
Wow. According to People, the user has yet to respond to the media’s request for comment.
